Bring Us Your Smoothies!

Recipes, any­way. Katie was informed by her doc­tor this week that she real­ly needs to put on 10–12 lbs, and she’ll still be on the thin side for her height and build.  Now, we’ve gone through this “must gain weight” thing through­out her 14 years. She’s always been in the 90th per­centile or so for height […]

Rafting, Anyone?

I’ve want­ed to go white­wa­ter raft­ing again since I tried it with Katie’s father around 1989. It was a mar­velous, exhil­a­rat­ing expe­ri­ence!
